Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Morning Dew

Can any one offer me some feed back about the 1989 Morning Dew at the Mecca in Wisconsin. In my opinion this is the best morning dew ever performed. Please include an e-mail so we can discuss this matter outside of this forum.

S.O.S Bobby.

I know people might bristle at this one, but 4/7/85 is my all time favorite Dew. Jerry's voice is totally shot - he sounds like he has a really bad cold - but that just contributes to an emotional edge that puts this version over the top. And the sound of his guitar during the verses and the solo is murkily sublime.

I haven't listened to this one in a while, but I also recall the very next year at the Spectrum March '86, forget which date, had a pretty powerful Dew. I remember the Philly phans didn't seem to pleased that they did only one tune out of space...

I just listened to that here in my office while waiting for a phone call that never came, and it is a nice one. But this is a good place to talk about Morning Dews. Why talk over email?

Those familiar with my thoughts here know that 1) "Best Of" is really just a "What is your favorite version?" question. Your best may be antoher's 5th or 6th. There is no right or wrong answer to this type of question. Arguing that there is is like giving validation to all those silly Rolling Stone "Best Of" lists. Who is to say who's opinion is the final judgement?. Now for 2), and no surprise here, my favorite Dew is the August 84 version that is mentioned below by a few folks. Technically the best? No. Long, extended monster jams? No, not really. What sets this one, and all the really good versions, apart for me is the amound of emotion that Jerry pours into it. During this tour his physical deterioration (and disturbing lack of personal hygiene) was becoming more pronounced. But this night he dug very deep in himself and produced some of the most heart-rending vocal work I've heard from him. Something about his growls just send shivers up my spine. That being said, I of course give a nod to the Barton Hall version, as well as the SPAC 83 and U of Vermont 83 versions as well. All powerful for slightly different reasons.

AS far as '80s Dews go, give 4-6-82 a try. Excellent version.

Best Morning Dews-

70s- 05-08-1977

80s- 03-27-1987

90s- 09-09-1993

note-The 03-27-87 show from hartford is an amazing Morning Dew......the whole show is tits,probably best show of 87 alla round, but the post drums is UJB>DEW...and it is fucking awesome. The Best UJB of the 80s for sure.

5/26/72

Check out this justly famous Dew in and out of a wild Other One and culminating with a sweet Sing Me Back Home. Pigpen's last vocal show, too, absolutely top notch . . . this transfer is relatively new to the archive, too.

http://www.archive.org/details/gd1972-05-26.sbd.waddell.89641.sbeok.flac16

BTW, I'm kinda partial to 4/29/71 too (not on archive, but on LAGTGD, I believe), another Dew where you can actually hear Pig's organ driving the madness . . .

is this 04-15-1989? nice version, '89 is a very strong year for morning dew...also check out 06-21 and 07-19 for other comparable versions...the 80s is the hardest decade to just pick out one a best Dew, a short list and include the above, would be 09-18-1987, 12-30-1987, 03-24-1986, 06-28-1985, 10-12-1984, 04-01-1984, 06-18-1983, 09-17-1982, see what I mean?...I concur on the recommendations of 05-08-1977 and 09-09-1993 for those eras...

My favorite Dew is always the last one I've heard ... But, in context, 6-18-83 is the most thrilling. Something about the audience clapping during the lull and Jerry roaring the final verse that sets it apart. Sad though the recording is not so great.

5-8-77 Is the greatest. That being said.....

Other MUST HAVE EPIC Dew's are as follows...
6-18-83 SPAC
10-12-84 Augusta
3-27-87 Hartford
9-17-82 Cumberland County (Why this never gets mentioned is beyond me).
9-18-87 MSG (Garcia "chose" not to sing the last verse which makes me think it is somewhat "limited")

Alpine, Ventura and Roanoke '87 also come to mind...
